Orissa International undertook a project to find potential importers of hardwood and softwood lumber in Thailand for a Southwest Virginia-based group of companies engaged in forestry processing (from felling of timber to milling) and the manufacture of all grades of lumber including furniture-grade, hardwood flooring, kiln-dried lumber, veneer logs, and pallet stock. Our team in Thailand identified and contacted local companies that deal with furniture manufacturing, logs, veneer, flooring distribution, and timber trading. Three companies were connected with the client via virtual business meetings, and one company expressed interest to purchase yellow poplar species.
